The Mommy Style File: One Dress For All Body Types

Q: CJ- I have a bit of a problem when it comes to dresses. I don't know what works best with my body type and feel frumpy. I am more of a pear-shape and not in love with my upper arms. What should I wear?

A: Good question! One dress style that works on most body types is the shirt dress or wrap dress. It provides enough draping, give and coverage to conform to most figures. If we lived in a perfect world, we could all afford an iconic DVF wrap dress (or five) and live in bliss. Unfortunately, the $400 price tag is a little out of most women's range. Here are some less expensive options; White House Black Market has a great clearance rack this time of year!


Linda Dress- $385
White House Black Market- Matte Jersey Wrap Dress: $39.98 on clearance

Jeanne Two Dress- $345

White House Black Market- Snake Print Shirt Dress: $39.98 clearance
Note: I recently bought the Snake Print Shirt Dress from WHBM and received many compliments! I wore it at an informal cocktail reception as well as a business dinner so it is very versatile!
